"Taking a team of 20 employees from the company to participate in the race as part of an international contingent of 200 runners; to visit the projects, mix with the kids and be inspired by the volunteers and to see the bustling markets and remote rural villages was an experience that was so enriching that it shall stay with me forever."

Roger Bickmore. Business development Director, The Kiln Group

"We really need events like this to help our country which was until recently the poorest in the world. So I thank the organisers for bringing an event to Sierra Leone that will benefit an important charity and will help children get off the street."

Idrissa Kargbo, Marathon Winner 2012

"I would highly recommend the event to those who want their charity experience to be a little more tangible. It certainly raised my awareness of what my sponsorship could achieve."

Helen Ward, KSLM runner and employee of Gold Sponsor, GMP

"Without doubt, the most exhilarating, challenging and impressive event I have ever participated in. The professionalism and scale of the first-ever marathon in Sierra Leone is a credit to the organising committee"

Esme Jones, KSLM runner and social media manager.
